Robust control and flexible operation are the major objectives of islanded microgrid. A microgrid can have different configurations with linear loads and nonlinear loads. The harmonic current caused by nonlinear loads make Proportional Integral (PI) or Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) voltage controller far beyond excellent performance in case of microgrid operating in islanded mode. Additionally, the robustness of the PID closed loop system can not be guaranteed. The voltage control by

However, PR controller has a slight deviation of the frequency of selected harmonic component. This paper presents a Sliding Mode Control (SMC) for voltage control of parallel inverters operating in islanded microgrid. This controller can enhance the robustness of control system and reduced-state tracking error. The stability of the closed-system is verified by means of Lyapunov stability criterion. The control structure is based on the inner sliding mode closed-loop and the outer droop control loop. The main aim of this paper is to design inner controllers to enhance the dynamics of the microgrid. The results obtained from the simulation of Matlab.
